Mission

Quill’s mission is to help more than 10 million low-income students each year become strong writers, readers, and critical thinkers. Teachers are busier than ever and have little to no time to provide individual writing feedback to their students. By building free online tools that use AI to automatically evaluate student writing, Quill provides 4th through 12th-grade students with immediate feedback and coaching. This enables students to revise their work immediately and quickly build their literacy skills.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Quill.org aims to serve all low-income K-12 students in the United States. Low-income students frequently do not receive sufficient feedback on writing, and have the most to gain through personalized writing instruction. As of 2012, there are 31 million low-income K-12 students in the United States, defined as students eligible for Free or Reduced Price Lunch. 88% of these students struggle with writing, which is one of the biggest hurdles low-income students face on their path to work, post-secondary training, and higher education. Never has this deficit been more pronounced or its downstream effects more devastating. In order to get a job, gain entry into a technical training program, or matriculate and succeed at college, students need to write emails, answer questions on digital applications, and write essays.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Since launching in September 2014, Quill.org has impacted over 8 million K-12 students from over 35,000 schools across all 50 states, with 64% of our students attending Title-1 eligible schools. These students have written and received feedback on over 2 billion sentences. Within the next five years, we aim to help 10 million low-income students per year improve their writing and thinking skills.

Quill helps students become strong readers and writers by using research-validated literacy strategies.

Quill’s first five tools focus on strengthening student writing skills: Quill Proofreader, Quill Grammar, Quill Diagnostic, Quill Lessons, and Quill Connect. Quill’s latest tool, Quill Reading for Evidence, focuses on building student reading comprehension through writing.

Using Quill Reading for Evidence, students read a non-fiction text and answer AI-powered writing prompts about the text while their AI tutor gives feedback on their responses in real-time. Far more powerful than multiple choice, Quill Reading for Evidence provides students the opportunity to engage in deeper thinking about a text and receive immediate feedback on their written answers to textual evidence questions.
